Download CX Feedback Data

During this quarter, the HISP collected feedback under a PRA clearance that does not all for public disclosure. HISPs are required to establish the new A-11 Section 280 generic clearance that allows for public reporting by October 1, 2020.

Digital Analytics Program Data

Since the launch of the CSAT on May 14 (thru June 30), we received 13,606 responses and have seen an overall trend of positive feedback. We have seen the most positive comments coming from customers researching a future trip, purchasing an annual pass, and modifying/cancelling a reservation. The team has also identified measurable goals to improve CSAT of RV and tent campers by identifying options to make maps more effective in making a reservation (such as illustrating locations in relation to other amenities and site features), increase images on facility pages to show various features of the locations, and streamline ability to discover availability of a secondary site after booking an initial site.

Reporting Notes

  • CX Feedback Data: HISPs are currently in the process of aligning their customer feedback collections to seven government-wide CX measures. These measures align to specifically worded questions that agencies may make minimal changes to (to ensure relevancy for their context) and be scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 indicating strong agreement with a measure statement. Agencies that use a 10 point scale provide a calculation for converting results to a five point scale. Many are collecting customer feedback under clearances that did not include a provision to share this data publicly. HISPs without the current capacity to collect and share data using the government-wide measures must identify a target date for reporting of these metrics not to exceed FY 2021, Quarter 1.
  • Operational Data: HISPs were provided the opportunity to submit operational data in their quarterly reporting to OMB that provides context regarding their customers' experiences with their service.
